I saw this card layout on SplitCoastStampers.com but unfortunately I don't remember who made it. The original card had buttons where I have used flowers.

I was feeling totally uninspired to stamp so decided to set myself a challenge. I recently bought a book by Claudine Hellmuth which includes cards for colours and topics. She adapted the idea from something she did at art school, so as the topics don't really apply to cards I decided to make my own lists.

Here are some examples from the four lists I used:
Topics - wings, funny, places, background
Colour - black, red, pink, purple
Embellishments - brads, ribbon, designer paper
Company - ellusive images, bella,

I labelled them all 1 to 10 using excel and asked my hubby to choose a 4 digit number. The number he picked gave me Topic = Place, Colour = Autumnal, Embellishment = Flowers and Company = Bella. The Bella stamp I used is called Paris, so that is also the place. :-)

Why not write lists to suit your preferences. My lists also include use a new stamp/old stamp, use something from my desk and open a random box!

Have a lovely week, Anne
